On a West Cork Farm Tour, you’ll gain a unique insight into Irish farming practices and communities
Join us on one of our Thursday West Cork Farm Tours (11am to 1pm). It’s a great way to connect with the people who help to produce the food West Cork is renowned for!
On your two-hour tour, you’ll spend time with some of Ireland’s most innovative farmers and creative food producers. You’ll immerse yourself for a morning in the vibrant communities that set West Cork apart.
A West Cork Farm Tour is a great way to get to know this unspoilt region. You’ll soon see that tradition and innovation go hand in hand here because this is a place where the past often feels as close as the present.
Our West Cork Farm Tours have featured in Lonely Planet. We’re proud of our farms on Ireland’s unspoilt southwest coastline. Our sustainable farming is something we’re eager to talk about with all of our visitors.
Whether you’re a farmer yourself, or just interested in how dairy, pork, and beef make their way from farm to plate, a West Cork Farm Tour is a real treat. You’re sure to fall for the charms of Rosscarbery village and the picturesque town of Clonakilty too.
Farming – A Way of Life
Farming is still very much a family affair here on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. The way we work is shaped by a deep knowledge of the land and our livestock, and we take great pride in sharing our passion for the land with our visitors. Most importantly, as you’ll discover, we’re working to sustain our way of life for future generations too.
We strive for excellence as we farm in ways that will be sustainable long into the future.
The History of West Cork is as Rich as its Food
Our mysterious stone circles are older than the pyramids, and John F. Kennedy, Henry Ford, and Michael Collins have their roots near Clonakilty and Rosscarbery farms. You might well ask why so many titans of world history come from such a small and beautiful place.
Is it something about the land here on the West Cork coastline? Did they draw inspiration from the communities that thrive in this stunning place? Or is it the region’s world-renowned food that helped them all achieve greatness? That’s certainly something to consider in a region voted Ireland’s best foodie destination.
The people to ask are our West Cork farmers – they and their families have worked this fertile land for generations.
